Gold Quarter Ounce 2022 Kiwi, Coin from New Zealand
CoinGold Quarter Ounce 2022 Kiwi

New Zealand uses the New Zealand Dollar as its circulation currency for daily transactions. The country also issues a number of commemorative and collector coins, including in the internationally popular gold quarter-ounce format (abbreviated as 1/4 oz Au, where "Au" comes from the Latin word for gold, Aurum). Authorised by the Reserve Bank of New Zealand, the official issuer of these coins is NZ Post - which also issues the country's postal stamps. Manufacturing of the coins is commissioned to various foreign mints.

The coins are "Non-Circulating Legal Tender" (NCLT) and not bullion because they are issued at prices much higher than their intrinsic value and are targeted at collectors who appreciate them for their artistic or sentimental value, and not at bullion investors.

This coin is part of an annual series featuring a new Kiwi design every year, and depicts the Little Spotted Kiwi (Apteryx owenii) - New Zealand’s smallest kiwi.

NZ Post says about it:
Kiwi are a beloved symbol of Aotearoa New Zealand, characteristic of the uniquely understated qualities that contribute to the nation’s collective identity. Also known as kiwi pukupuku, the little spotted kiwi is the smallest of five kiwi species. The little spotted kiwi is the only recent species of kiwi to have become extinct on the New Zealand mainland. However, thanks to predator-free islands and fenced sanctuaries, the population is estimated to be 2,000 and growing.

The male kiwi pukupuku parent will stay with the nest until the chick is mature enough to leave. With an illustration by Stephen Fuller, this coin depicts a kiwi with its chick in their natural habitat.

Obverse
New Zealand / Gold Quarter Ounce 2022 Kiwi - obverse photo

The obverse shows the crowned mature head of Queen Elizabeth II facing right (her effigy known as the "Fourth Portrait"). The Queen wears the "Girls of Great Britain and Ireland" diamond tiara, a wedding gift from Queen Mary (Her Majesty's grandmother) in 1947 - which she also has on the Machin and the Gottwald portraits.

In small letters below the head, the artist's initials IRB (for Ian Rank-Broadley).

Around the effigy is the monarch's legend and the date: NEW ZEALAND .9999 Au .25oz ELIZABETH II 2022.

The inscription also indicates the precious metal content - ".9999 Au .25oz" means "one quarter of a troy ounce of 99.99% gold"; Au is abbreviated from Aurum, the Latin word for gold.
